If you're looking for anime similar to Dorohedoro, you might like these titles.
After a breach between Earth and the netherworld opens up over New York, humans and creatures from other dimensions become trapped in an impenetrable bubble that surrounds the city. Forced to coexist in a new city known as Salem’s Lot, the shaky peace between humanity and the netherworld creatures is protected by an underground group of super humans known as Libra. When a case of mistaken identity brings not-so-ordinary delivery boy Leonardo Watch face-to-face with this group, he joins their ranks hoping to help prevent the destruction of the world by a group of monsters and madmen lead by a powerful being known as the King of Despair.
Both shows have: crazy worlds full of weird shid, bizarre characters and odd plot and that's pretty much it...
Similar crazy cities which is the norm
With strange creatures etc
Dorohedoro is more violent and gore
As soon as I started Dorohedoro I was reminded of Blood Blockade Battlefront.
Both have a similar mixutre of characters with lighthearted charm and goasl with high stakes, unusual worlds where anything can happen, and a sense of mystery regarding exploring the unknown
The plot of both series consists of little stories following a bunch of seemingly random crazy characters in a world of pure chaos
Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as "Chainsaw Man"—a man with a devil's heart.
Both have bizarre world and brutal fights, and I like both quite a lot. Chainsaw Man is currently airing, but given what we have so far, I feel fairly comfortable speaking to the quality of it. Both also utilize 3D animation, albeit to differing extents. If you like one, you'll likely like the other.
Very simmilar anime both anime is year god tier list very in to it. love violent blood amazing fights amazing story amazing drama amazing anime just love it
Mangaka of CM got a lot of inspiration from Dorohedoro. Both are horror, violent scenarios but with humor and fun friendships.
In Japan's Warring States period, Lord Daigo Kagemitsu makes a pact with 12 demons, exchanging his unborn son for the prosperity of his lands. The child is born malformed and is set adrift in a river, while Kagemitsu's lands thrive as promised. Years later, young thief Dororo encounters the mysterious "Hyakkimaru", a boy whose arms are blades and whose visionless eyes seem able to see monsters.
Dorohedoro and Dororo share a lot of similarities (including the half similar names! XD)
Both shows have
While both shows have these common points, they are also very distinct from each other. So it's not like one is an altered version of the other. You'll surely love both of these shows if you're okay with heavy themes like explicit violence and death.
In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans -- yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.
Both anime has the motif of using masks; lots of blood spilling all around; characters that are creepy and has no common sense or anything related. XD
Princess Rinda and her brother Remus are the foretold Twin Pearls of Parros – one will be a shining prophet and the other a great ruler. However, when their homeland is lost to the invading Mongaul army and their parents slain during the siege, Rinda and Remus are transported into Rood Forest, a dangerous hideout for ghouls. Lost and vulnerable, the two barely escape death thanks to the help of a powerful man with the head of a leopard called Guin who cannot remember who is or how he became that way. Together they journey across the land, evading monsters, fighting the power-hungry Mongaul army, and gathering trusted companions such as Istavan Spellsword and Suni of the monkey-like Sem – all in the hope of fulfilling their destinies and finally bringing peace to Parros.
Both shows have a protagonist who his head was turned into an animal and wake up without any memories of knowing who they are and what they are supposed to do. Both are good at fighting and go along helping other characters in need. Both shows have good character designs and lots of world-building.
However, Guin is a more serious show, while Dorohedoro is part comedy and easy going.
In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
They share a similar kind of humor, have a realy complex world with no black in white characters. Nobody is totaly evil or good, they are just human.
Although Golden Kamuy is much more family friendly, both share some moments of gore. Sometimes the gore is a marriage betwwen grotesque and hilarious.
Humans that have been physically altered and turned into dangerous weapons are known as the Extended. Juuzou Inui awakens as one of these weapons—with amnesia. But his job as an agent investigating the Extended leads to a mysterious child with Extended ties showing up at his office. Now Inui must keep the child away from street gangs and the megacorporation Berühren, and it won’t be easy.
While the storylines are a bit different, it has a bit of the same dark vibe and in my oppinion the animationstyle is much a like. Both main characters have a none human head (and also have a blonde female companion/partner). Both enjoyable anime, though my preference goes more towards Dorohedoro if I'm completely honest. No Guns Life (season 1 and season 2) should be able to fill your time in the same theme-ish until Dorohedoro season 2.
After the third world war, the organization known as the General Management Control Office constructed the city of Olympus – the only place where chaos and anarchy doesn’t hold sway. It seems unthinkable that terrorists are out to disrupt this pristine society, but the threat becomes very real to SWAT officers Deunan and Briareos when their squad mates are killed during a hostage situation. Bent on catching the lone escaped terrorist, they soon find themselves involved in a plot to undermine the whole existence of their Olympus.
In many many ways these shows are completely different. The plots are different, the genres are different and the style of each is different.
BUT one thing is very familiar between them and that is the relationship of the two leads. If you love the dynamic of Deunan and Briareos then I think you'll love that similar dynamic between Nikaido and Kaiman. They aren't cut and paste in terms of personalities but similar enough that I believe fans of either of these shows could find the others appealing, especially if the main characters were a large draw for you in either show.
Gods appeared when humanity was on the verge of destruction due to the work of demons. Deities called "Idaten" fought and sealed away the demons 800 years ago. Nowadays, the Idaten have no fighting experience and they live peaceful lives. But now the demons are reviving, and the battle between gods, humans, and demons is about to begin.
Both seems to be written by psychos in a very good way, have a similar atmosphere and humor, charismatic villains, a very intricate world and very distinct art style. Storywise, they are very unlike each other but both extremely enjoyable.
Dorohedoro is one of my fav anime ever, so I'm very pleased to have found Idaten, it's like a breeze of fresh ideas in a saturated world of cliche anime.
In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
I suggest this just because of the unique somewhat bleak but well thought out world building in both. Soul Eater is infinitely less brutal but if you appreciated the world that Dorohedoro built i think you can get a liking to Soul Eater as well
